The Place


Much more than a bistro



We created a space that we at first would have wanted to have in our city, a place that offers a creative and welcoming atmosphere, where people can share relaxed moments and get to know the real Tuscany.

Not only lunches and aperitifs, at Volaterra we host art exhibits, events and private parties, cultural and musical evenings. It is a modern environment, in the centre of an ancient city as Volterra, where past and present coexist.

The charm of the tradition is combined with the desire of discovery.



Great Things

Taste the Tuscan flavour



For us the ingredients are the most important things and come as first. Our shelfs are our business card, here you can discover products from our land that we carefully selected and by getting to know each producer.

Each product is served and told with passion by our staff, who will be happy to make you taste it and know it. The best Tuscan excellences are at your disposal: you can taste them at the table or you can take them home, your choice.

The journey to discover Tuscany starts from here, from our counter.



The art of taste, taste for art



Not only flavours, but also colours.
The bistros have always been some of the favourite places for artists. What combines taste for food and taste for art is the enhancing of beauty: being able to grab and enhance the sensation of an instant, through a flavour, a poetry or a painting.

At Volaterra we host art exhibition, we organize meetings with the artists and we have fun by mixing culture, art, cooking and performances.

A sensorial and emotional experience

Winehouse and tasting of local wines in Volterra


Volaterra only offers to its customers the best of the Tuscan wine tradition.

The personal knowledge of the land and of the Tuscan wine cellars allowed us to gather a wide and accurate wine selection.

Our passion is not only pointed towards choosing the best labels, but also towards offering peculiar tastings and combination with the dishes from our menu, so to taste them following the conviviality that you can find in the bistro.





From his previous experiences and his strong passion for his land, in 2012 he decided to do something new in his own city, Volterra. This is how the bistro Volaterra, the homonimous holiday house and the Osteria dei Fornelli restaurant were born. In April 2017, he was elected president of the young entrepreneurs Confesercenti of North Tuscany.

Young, prepared and passionate, our 100% Tuscan staff loves to make their guests discover the Tuscan beauty, in all ways possible. Whether this is a monument, a landscape, a flavour, a fragrance or a colour, the boys and girls of Volaterra will be able to welcome you and to tell you our excellences or simply to make you feel comfortable in a welcoming and inviting environment.
